MLK Day Of Service 2017 

On Monday, January 16, 2017 more than 1500 community and corporate volunteers will make MLK Jr. Day of Service a “Day on, not a day off” as they revitalize and beautify the campus of Dorsey High School, a local Title I school. At this school, 60% of the students receive free lunch and come from low-income families. The L.A. Unified School District is the largest (in terms of number of students) public school system in California. This district has a reputation for extremely crowded schools, high dropout and expulsion rates, low academic performance in many schools, and poor maintenance. Of the over 71,000 students the start the 9th grade in LAUSD, fewer than 31,000 graduate 4 years later and only 8,200 are prepared for college. Join L.A. Works in helping breathe new life into this historic school while creating a more inspiring environment for teachers and students, allowing them to focus on success!
